It should be possible to use this with Vanilla Doom, if desired. First

doom2 -file britd2.wad (when playing Doom 2)
doom2 -file brittnt.wad (when playing TNT:Evilution)

chocolate-doom -deh british.deh -file british.wad
chocolate-doom -deh british.deh -file britd2.wad (for Doom 2)
chocolate-doom -deh british.deh -file brittnt.wad (for TNT)
The dehacked patch is included in the PWAD files. Because of this, with
some ports, such as PrBoom or ZDoom, it is only necessary to load the
